Road To Redemption - Poem by Aqeb Benazir Ibn Minar

Introduction: Tribute to brothers in the fray and families for them pray...


Life in these rough times,
We barely even feel the daytime
Every second counts greatly,
As there’s no going back in time
Sometimes we lose to win, try not to fail again,
But mostly we end up back to where we all began
Every single day, we wake up in one piece,
Where brothers in the fray, they hardly get to cease
Our tears dropp all over the floor,
They keep on till their blood stains from their core
Every second till the end,
We pray for them to knock on our doors
Sadly at times, things go the other way for the best cause,
All we can do really, is not breakdown and pause

Prayer’s the only strand through the last breath,
When they depart with a peaceful end
Emptiness and happiness, constantly flowing along,
The memories, they always live right within our souls
When days seem cloudy and life gets lonely
Debts grow high and smiles fade into sigh
At that instant, that very moment,
Just pray, pray to get healed,
Heal from this insanity, pray to be free,
Free from this misery
It all comes down to the crying in the end,
The stillness stares up towards the sky
As we do bid farewell to dear friends
But at some point through all the pain and sour grin, recovery does begin

The ones we love and care,
Though some are not so near
Scattered through this bittersweet world,
Waiting for us to share;
This life is like the weather,
It changes altogether
It may get bad and may get sad,
But know it’s not forever,
Better days will come eventually,
The morning sun will shine brightly
Through our endeavors and our prayers, we shall recover
From things we’ve lost so dearly
So just hold on to the light and believe in salvation,
And the rays of truth shall lead the road to redemption…

    i read your 4 poems, road to redemption, birthday rose, course of nature, and forgotten fate and my honest opinion: you are a brilliant writer. im amazed at how you manage to make them full of meaning, flowing and easy to read, and still rhyme as well. there arent many who can do that. you truly have a gift. keep it up =) (Report)Reply
